Donald Trump Jr. made waves on social media after sharing various posts mocking the brutal attack on Paul Pelosi — the husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Trump Jr. has now deleted those posts.
On Sunday night, he retweeted a picture of a “Paul Pelosi Halloween Costume” which depicted a pair of underwear and a hammer. Paul Pelosi, 82, was beaten with a hammer and is hospitalized with a fractured skull.
Pelosi’s attacker has a history of sharing right-wing conspiracy theories and grievances often shared by former President Donald Trump, including denouncing the House Jan. 6 committee, election and Covid-19 vaccine conspiracy theories, and content supportive of QAnon.
